Study illustrates huge potential of human, artificial intelligence collaboration in medicine

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is increasingly being used in medicine to support human expertise. However, the potential of these applications and the risks inherent in the interaction between human and artificial intelligence have not yet been thoroughly researched. The fear is often expressed that in future, as soon as AI is of sufficient quality, human expertise will become dispensable and therefore […]

Researchers map structural variants in 17,795 sequenced human genomes

A large team of researchers affiliated with a very large number of medical institutions across the U.S. and also three from Finland, two from Mexico, and one from the U.K. has mapped structural variants in 17,795 sequenced genomes. In their paper published in the journal Nature, the group describes their work, which was meant to explore structural variants in genome […]

Care of three-week-old Gorilla Baby: Can it infect I with Covid-19?

The Rostock Zoo cares for her three-week-old Gorilla Baby. Zoologists think that it is likely that great apes are for the novel Coronavirus-prone. Evidence is not yet available, but already in the past, apes were always of human respiratory virus found In rhesus monkeys, the formation of immune-body to Sars was detected viruses. Mother Yene take care of your infant, […]

Component of human breast milk enhances cognitive development in babies

Maternal factors, such as breast milk, have been shown to affect a baby’s development, and previous animal studies have determined that a carbohydrate, the oligosaccharide 2’FL found in maternal milk, positively influences neurodevelopment. Now, in the first study done in humans, investigators at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles in collaboration with the University of California, San Diego, have shown that 2’FL […]

3-D model of human liver for better diagnosis

Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease is becoming the most common chronic liver disorder in developed countries. Histological analysis of liver tissue is the only widely accepted test for diagnosing and distinguishing different stages of the disease. However, this technique provides only two-dimensional images of the liver tissue in low resolution and overlooks potentially important 3-D structural changes. Researchers at the Max […]

Endocannabinoid system may be involved in human testis physiology

The endocannabinoid system (ECS) may be directly involved in the regulation of the physiology of the human testis, including the development of sperm cells, according to a study in tissue samples from 15 patients published in Scientific Reports. The ECS is a signalling system consisting of endocannabinoids—a type of neurotransmitter—their associated receptors, enzymes and proteins. In humans, the ECS has […]

Laboratory studies identify a potential way to treat human cancers with ARID1A mutations

A new study shows that tumor cells depleted of ARID1A—a protein that acts as a cancer suppressor—become highly sensitive to anticancer poly ADP ribose polymerase (PARP) inhibitor drugs after radiation treatment. The research, led by Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center researchers, could advance efforts to treat many human cancers with loss of ARID1A that are resistant to current standard treatments, […]
